Ok, When I first moved to Hawaii in 1970 with my Native Hawaiian husband and 3 children I was introduced to this recipe from my sister in law who has since passed on but she was a wonderful cook. I use different seasoning than hers as well(she just used Hawaiian salt for seasoning... This picture of the stew looks foggy cause I took a picture of it while it was cooking hence you see steam coming up..and forgot to take a picture of it in a bowl before we had it for supper the other night.
Its a family favorite and especially is to my youngest son.
In Hawaii the sides for it would be poi and poki but since we moved to WA state I can't run to the store and buy a sack of poi.
So instead hubby makes Poki and I serve rice with it for him and make a pan of cornbread for me.. I can tell you this stew is good!
I skim off the scum that is on the top of the water.
